Gaslighting Abecedarian

Any sane person any
body in a relationship a body
can hope, wish can
dream a fantastical truthful dream.
Every day going through every
friendly careful, calculated friendly
gracious gesture of meaning. Gracious
happiness wreaking havoc for happiness
in minutes in
just
kind
loving
minutes.
Never sure what really happened. Never
overt rewording of the facts. Overt
purposeful rewording and purposeful
quashing of the truth. And quashing
reality with the heel of a shoe. A reality
serving the best interests. Serving 
tearful stained faces of tearful
untruths by looking in the eyes of these untruths.
Verifications and questioning verifications
without
exception.
You’re
zealous.
